A Unique Offer in Fine Art Photography - Michael Frye

The Ansel Adams Gallery is thrilled to offer its collectors, friends and fellow art lovers, a chance to participate in a unique opportunity. From time to time on our website, we will be featuring a never-before-printed image from one of our distinguished Gallery artists at a discounted price, prior to its availability within the general market place.

This month, we have arranged to present two images from Michael Frye: “Swirling Mist from Tunnel View, Yosemite” and “Stars, Mist, Three Brothers and The Merced River, Yosemite” in the sizes 16x20 and 20x24. While Michael's original prints normally sell in these size up to $475, you can now add one to your private collection for 25% off the initial retail price. Each photograph is made by Mr. Frye, printed to current archival standards, signed and numbered, as well as mounted, matted and ready for framing. The time to purchase will begin at 9:00 AM Pacific Time on Monday, June13th, and will expire upon the close of business, Sunday, June 19th at 6:00 PM. Once the offer has expired, we anticipate an order fulfillment time of approximately four weeks to ensure the quality of each individual order. This inaugural printing offer is available for a very limited time, after which, the print will return to full price.

Email our curator, Evan Russel, at evan@anseladams.com if you have any additional questions about the prints or shipping.

About the Photographs

Swirling Mist from Tunnel View, Yosemite National Park, California

I made this photograph in June of 2011, after an exceptionally wet winter and spring. I was teaching a private workshop that day, and took my student up to Tunnel View, knowing that moisture from the rainstorm the night before might generate mist. There we were treated to a spectacular sunrise. My favorite moment is shown in this photograph, when the sun hit the valley floor, and some mist curled up in front of Bridalveil Fall.

Stars, Mist, Three Brothers, and the Merced River, Yosemite National Park, California

I had hoped this snowstorm might clear before sunset, but it kept snowing until well after dark. My wife Claudia and I joined a friend for dinner at Yosemite Lodge, and we watched snow falling outside and coating the trees. But it seemed possible that the storm might clear soon, so we lingered a bit.

We finally left the bar about nine o’clock, and even though light snow was still falling we saw stars, and it looked like the storm was clearing. We ended up at one of my favorite spots along the Merced River, with a view of the Three Brothers, and it turned into an incredibly beautiful night, with fresh snow, mist wrapped around the cliffs, and stars above.

There was no moonlight, but the snow helped to lighten the foreground by reflecting whatever light was available, and to the east Yosemite Point was also illuminated by the lights from Yosemite Village and Yosemite Lodge. The best modern digital cameras can record even the faintest light, making it possible, it seems, to photograph a clearing storm by starlight.
